Some people need a little jerk or the famous kick in the ass to sit up and grab their destiny by the neck, in Desiigner’s case his music career began after he was shot. He then made music with rap heavyweights like Kanye West.
Desiigner’s Bio, Age
The rapper stormed onto the stage when his new hit single broke in spring 2016. Desiigner was born on May 3, 1997, as Sidney Royel Selby III and is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and is of African-American descent.
He comes from a family with a proud musical heritage; his grandfather is the popular blues musician Selby Sidnei. He began singing in the church choir at the age of 14 but owes his fame and popularity to his debut single Panda, which was discontinued in 2016. The title stormed the charts and reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 in February 2016.
His career took an upward turn when rap icon Kanye West, who Panda had sampled for his 7th album, announced that the upcoming rapper would be signed to his Good Music imprint under the Def Jam Recordings label. Before Panda, Desiigner had released a few songs like Danny Devito and On the Low, but none of them were the start of his career.
His debut single was so good that some top artists like Meek Mill and Maino were rejected among many others when they tried to remix the title. Soon he also realized that fame could be something like a poisoned chalice when he came under criticism because of the similarities to the Atlanta rapper Future.
He didn’t just accept the criticism and soon answered the critics that God had given him Future as a blessing, but he also gave himself a blessing. He said he had respect for Future’s music and hoped that the sky would be big enough for everyone to shine.
In mid-2016, Desiigner announced that he would name his first studio album The Life of Designer, and the music production will be handled by Mike Dean, who has also worked with Kanye West. Desiigner was featured as a guest vocalist on the lead single of the upcoming Cruel Winter named Champions album.
Like most hip-hop artists today, Desiigner has had his struggle with the law. A 911 caller claimed on September 8, 2016, that Desiigner pointed a gun at three other people, which immediately led to their arrest.
They were charged with drug possession and weapons possession, which was later dropped on September 10. His music brand is based entirely on southern hip-hop, known as trap music, which originated in Atlanta, Georgia.
Desiigner Net Worth
Desiigner is quite young and was still a teenager when his hit single Panda hit the airwaves. After signing his record deal with Kanye, he bought real estate in New York and Los Angeles. He has expressed interest in expanding his real estate portfolio and has earned a net value of around $5 million.
He grew up in Bedstuy Brooklyn, New York with his three siblings, an older brother, and two sisters. He is quite secretive about his family, and there are not many records of them on the Internet. But as you know, he took his mother Sheila with him as his date to the Grammy’s, a gesture that says a lot about his value to family life. The history of the family goes back to the island of Barbados.

Sidney had been freakishly tall from a very young age, from childhood to teenage years to his teenage years. He currently stands at about 6 ft. 4, which is about 193 cm tall. He also weighs quite a pound and currently weighs about 92 kg, which is about 203 pounds.
